>> that's all for now. i'm lester holt. thanks for joining us. for nbc bay area news starts now. >> well, we can't give in to hysteria or fear. >> right now at 11:00, a new medical s.w.a.t. team ready to descend on any medical facility with an outbreak of ebola. and finally, new guidelines for nurses who have been on the front lines of the ebola battle. plus, relief at the pump. gas prices hitting lows not seen in many months. what is behind the drop? and the downside you might have not thought about. and let it rain. a storm system right off the coast means a wet commute tomorrow morning. good evening to you. i'm peggy bunker. >> and i'm terry mcsweeney. we begin with the change the weather and your microsystem forecast. san jose on your left, san francisco on your right.
11:01 pm
it's clear right now. but that's going to change over the next several hours. meteorologist anthony slaughter tracking this storm. anthony, when does it get here? tomorrow morning right in the heart of rush hour. we're talking about 7:00 to 11:00, even through lunch time, those showers will linger. i just want to show you what is happening right now. showers moving in to the coastline, up towards eureka, where they've seen steady rain for the past hour or so. all of that activity is going to continue to progress this way as we head into the overnight hours. this starts it off right associate monday at 6:00. showers moving towards santa rosa sack, up towards point reyes, even napa. the shower activity will continue to hang out in the north bay. but eventually, we'll move toward san francisco and down through the peninsula as we head toward 9:00, 10:00, 11:00. and by lunch time, the showers will be over towards livermore, even in san jose right around noon. so real moral of this story is that this is just the beginning. because as we head toward later on in the week, wednesday, thursday and friday, we're talking about a good chance of some shower activity. in fact, in san francisco alone,
11:02 pm
a 63% chance of showers by friday. we're going to talk about what this means for the world series coming up in just a bit. >> you know that is great news, anthony. thank you so much. well, right now nurses getting the protection they have been asking for. the centers for disease control has now issued new guidelines for health care workers who come into contact with ebola patients. taking the cue from the spread of ebola in texas, official says all nurses and doctors need to be covered with protective gear so that no skin is exposed that was apparently the mistake that was made in dallas, where two nurses were infected. >> and it became very clear right away that we needed to modify that protocol to be much, much more strict in which no part of the body is exposed. >> also, a new 30-person medical support team will be trained to provide assistance to any medical center in the country in the event of an outbreak. the medical team will be ready to go by early november. meanwhile, governor brown is set to meet with top nurses on tuesday about the need for higher standards. the goal is to make california the national leader when it
11:03 pm
comes to ebola safety. also on tuesday afternoon, nurses are planning to rally in oakland, as the state formally adopts better standards. in dallas, 48 people who were under quarantine orders the past three weeks are now in the clear. all of the people in the group had contact with thomas eric duncan, the ebola patient who died earlier this month. tonight marked 21 days without symptoms, which means the danger has passed. while they may have peace of mind regarding their own health, many are mourning duncan's death, among them his fiancee. >> she lost fiancee who is also the father of her son. she lost her plans, her dreams. >> troh says she and her family are now asking for privacy. she also addressed criticism of duncan's actions. she says he would never have knowingly put people at risk and did not know he was infected when he returned from liberia. in spain, the nurse who came down with ebola after treating two patients in that country
11:04 pm
will be able to return home. a blood test showed she is free of the virus. the hospital says it will release her after doing a second blood test to confirm her recovery. continuing coverage on the ebola fight will be on air and on that includes a guide on how the ebola virus is spread. again, and new at 11:00, it appear there's is another victim in the case of a palo alto flasher, seeing news reports now of the indecent exposure incident. the couple then came forward the say something similar happened to their daughter too. the 13-year-old was walking her daughter east of palo alto high school in august when she saw man touching himself in a car and looking at her. she kept walk. he showed up again, doing the same thing. take a look at the sketch of the man who exposed himself to a 10-year-old and a 14-year-old girl in separate incidents earlier this month. the suspect description is similar for all three of the cases. however, a different sketch of a man who exposed himself to a
11:05 pm
woman riding a bike earlier this month. police think the two are different flashers. new surveillance video tonight that could help mountain view police identify this person. police say he may be involved in a burglary at a downtown business last sunday. the surveillance video shows the person entering the business on castro street just a few blocks east of the central expressway. that's where a cell phone was stolen. officers are not releasing names of the businesses. there is plenty of supply, but just not enough demand. if you drive, you notice gas prices are falling. but relief at the pump could come back to haunt us in 2015. nbc bay area's nannette miranda is joining us where apparently customers have been lining up to take advantage of the prices? >> yeah, definitely sticker shock in a good way. prices could even fall below $3 a gallon for regular gasoline by the end of the year. think of the extra money you'll have for holiday shopping just brace for what the new year may bring. >> they're wonderful. i'd like to see it go lower. >> reporter: drivers passing by
11:06 pm
the arco station on central road in san jose are just giddy. regular gasoline is $3.17 a gallon. yes, $3.17. >> oh, man, this is the best thing going here. >> reporter: people are loving the extra money in their pockets. >> usually i buy $40 for going to work. now i can save $10 or more a week. >> reporter: and don't mind waiting in line for the bargain. >> gas $3.17? you can't beat it. you can't beat it. we've been in line foreten minutes already. but it's worth it. >> reporter: the price of gasoline has dropped 50 cents a gallon since the start of summer. >> the real reason that gas prices are fall right now at really steep rate, steeper rates than we've seen in years due to the free fall in crude oil prices. >> reporter: analyst says global demand is slowing, while production has maintained or even increased in some places, leading to a glut that could persist at least until next year. so prices could fall another 20
11:07 pm
cents a gallon in the coming weeks. economists, though, caution, lower gas prices could hurt the u.s. economy by reducing employment and exports. still, drivers are enjoying the bargain while they can. >> but this morning when i passed by here it was 3:11. so now it went up a few cents. but it's still the cheapest in town. >> a global warming law in january is sure to increase prices too. they estimate the jump to be about a dime a gallon while the oil industry says the jump will be about 76 cents a gallon. live in san jose, nannette miranda, nbc bay area news. >> nanette, thanks very much. new details now on the bay bridge project. check out this gridlock on friday. if you were stuck in it, you probably don't want to look at the pictures. new steel plates have people hitting the brakes on the other side of the bridge of the fremont exit in san francisco. nbc bay area's christie smith live in san francisco along the
11:08 pm
embarcadero with new details on that project. christie? >> reporter: yeah, good evening, terry. well, commuters certainly didn't want to go through that again. and now those steel plates on this side of the bay bridge on the upper deck that caused all of those problems, well, they are out this evening. but caltrans still has to figure out the most efficient way to get the necessary work done. huge backup friday threw a curve to drivers trying to cross the bay bridge into san francisco. kendall ryan expected a smooth ride. >> and i looked at the news and they said an hour and a half to get over the bridge. i just turned around and took bart in. >> the delays caltrans says came after tapered steel plates were put in near the fremont street exit. some drivers slowed down considerably. now those same plates have been removed. >> predicting traffic is an inexact science. we knew there would be some delays. but when we looked at them and it lasted as long as it did forbe as as far as they did, then they made the decision to
11:09 pm
suspend the work. and let's just reexamine this. >> reporter: the plates help accommodate the work. caltrans is trying to replace six expansion decks on the upper deck western span after they found wear and tracks. >> there really was too much. the traffic was very bad for a very long time. and you can't sustain that kind of delays. >> reporter: despite message signs along the bridge, some drivers say they wanted more notice, and were concerned still about a slow monday. >> get up early. you know, be prepared for the slowdown. >> reporter: but the drive, at least for the short-term likely won't be a repeat of friday. >> amazing. yes. tomorrow is going to be a lot better. i was preparing for an hour and a half, two-hour commute tomorrow, but it sound like that won't happen. >> reporter: caltrans says they did similar work on the bay bridge in 2002 and after that on the richmond-san rafael bridge. this is something they have done before. but they're going to be meeting tomorrow and trying to formulate a plan to do this in the most
11:10 pm
efficient way. with the at least interruptions. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, nbc bay area news. >> all right. thank you so much. could aldon smith be back on the field earlier than expected? a report out tonight says the 49ers linebacker could have his nine-game suspension reduced. according to the pro football talk mike florio, the league could reduce his suspension by a game or two. if it is reduced two games, the suspension would be over. the nfl suspended him last august for violating conduct and substance abuse policies. south bay niner fans did watch the game tonight against the broncos at a san jose bar and grill. boy, they really could have used all the vets tonight. the team lost 42-17, a painful loss there as peyton manning had a great night. broke the nfl record for touchdown. henry wofford have more in sports. let's shift from the 49ers

11:12 pm
make my money. for two, i wanted it reunited with him. you know, i do believe that there is good people out there that would be the same thing. he is the man who hit the ball. i'm just the lucky guy that was in the right place to catch it. >> well, he met ishikawa after the game and made a fair trade. the ball for a signed bat. that's not the end of the story, though. the next day, that's a nice bat. >> yeah. >> the next day, the team gave him four tickets to game three of the world series. that's friday night in san francisco. well, fans showing their support for the orange and black. check out our photo gallery online and tweet your photos at nbc bay area, or e-mail them to us. we'll also have continuing coverage on today in the bay. headed to kansas city tomorrow morning>ç . >> is everybody out? >> no, there is a man inside. >> coming up next, a heroic rescue caught on camera. a man rushes into a burning home and saves a grandfather trapped inside. plus, grim news in the
